  • You came to my rescue in the toughest two years of my life!

  • I used to think that ministry means full-time, complete-effort and continuous learning, but now I learned that it is a full-time heart.

  • I will be alert to distinguish Satan’s attacks. I know that God can use me mightily as I draw near to him and His word. I learned how to appropriately deal with the different types of characters without hurting feelings, and also how to work humbly in a team.

  • Over the years, I have boasted about belonging to AWT family. And a lot has changed in my life and character. Those who are close to me testify, and especially my husband who continuously encourages me. I have almost collapsed because of my heart that was not able to say no and overpressured with what people say, until I shared my heart with you and recognized that it has been an attack from Satan against my life, trying to hinder my ministry.

  • I have been trained on how to prepare my own training strategy, and gained other skills to support me in my ministry with women.

  • I have grown spiritually. I have a renewed mind. I forgave completely, and I started to lead through the Bible. My character changed and I began to better discern other characters. I have improved in dealing with challenges, and I am being less dependent in relationships; I am leading better at home and my serving methods changed.

  • AWT has brought zeal to my life to turn the learned knowledge into life experience. Things changed in my personal and spiritual life. My mindset changed. I began to take practical steps, set goals and plan for change. I have set my mind to adopt the change I want to see happen in my life, and to be a source of influence and encouragement to others.

  • My prayer life has improved. I know my value in Christ and I trust Him to surpass all challenges and failures, as a result of this I am able to pursue success in my life and ministry. I have been facing obstacles, challenges and frustrations leading the women meeting at my place. I was about to surrender but the positive impact on the women I serve kept me going. AWT gave me a great motive to proceed, and whenever I failed, I used to remember the promises of my value in Christ, in addition to having learned how to manage change in my life. I was able to set goals for my life and have started implementing them.

  • I learned that I need myself to grow to help others whom I serve to grow. It will enable me to serve with love and be influential, equipping servants after God’s heart.

  • AWT helped me to change and thus influenced my circle of influence. I am more transparent with myself and the Lord. My character is changing; I have more love to reach out to others. I have found some tangible change in me. I am helping others to have their minds renewed and get out of the box trapping them in the old thinking patterns.

  • AWT affected my personality in all aspects of my life; spiritual, social, family, educational, business and practical life. During the 10 years of being followed-up by AWT: I have become a mature, confident, literate and educated person. My conduct has radically changed. I started a transparent and faithful life with God. I am more compassionate toward people; forgiveness and love became my weapon. I became capable of teaching others. On the personal level, my life has also changed; I adopted some healthy habits, such as: reading and exercise.

  • Whenever I needed your support, you were there for me. I can positively say that what I am today and the reason behind being a successful Arab woman is because of you and your trainings. You have worked on building my character and my self-esteem. I am richer in spirit, soul and body and thus pouring into others. Your annual conference is rich in nature; it is like harvesting and collecting supplies for the whole year. I will go then to my community and feed them the fat as appropriate to their needs. It is not only me that has been influenced, but I have also influenced others in my church ministry: adults, youth and children. As a result of the material that built me and that I shared; our home meetings started to grow in number to a point where we had to start a family meeting at the church, especially for such topics from AWT.

  • I have a greater level of faith because of meeting other women in the conferences, and seeing how they are taking steps in their lives to serve Jesus. I am challenging myself and pushing my limits to help others in need. The conferences were helpful in terms of understanding myself and my potentials. Now, I started to appreciate myself more; I can love myself and see me influential. I have set out on the journey of change in my life, and would love to create it in other people’s lives.

  • You have given me strength and persistence. You taught me how to refuse timidity and weakness.

  • I am more confident in myself and have built new friendships from other nations and tongues. I used not to mingle but with my own ethnic group, but now I serve in a ministry where I am the only Armenian.

  • AWT has influenced my life and brought radical change in concepts, principles and behaviors. I have explored my identity, overcome failure and now I am pursing change. What I learned has brought about a revolution in my life that I can’t help but share with others. You have believed in us; Arab women. I have been personally encouraged by your love and hospitality.

  • I was able to take decisions in my life of ministry and was writing them down while listening. I had a clear message from the lord: when it comes to the past, I need to stop grabbing things from my old mailbox and even replying to those mails. I have a new address now; it is vision.

  • You have provoked me to get out of my comfort zone. I have taken a serious decision and left my work in order to fulfill my God-given dream to change the community through changing syllabuses.

  • Thank you AWT for helping me think and discern my motives! I believe if I should grab any chance to make my life better; mentally, physically and spiritually, I will see the difference in people's life through influence and thus inspiriting others to live the same life.

  • AWT: You are such an organized ministry. You’re constantly instilling self-confidence and love in us to seek a better life. My life changed and my character is now refined because of your work in my life. I have a higher self-esteem and I am influencing those around me. I have got rid of my negativity; having indulged myself in new positive circles of life.

  • Many things have changed in my life and in the life of others, only because of what I learned; which made a turning point in my mindset and my approach towards others. I have formed a new mindset and gained a new perspective on relationships, and started to act on it.

  • I learned that I am responsible about my thoughts, attitudes, and what the history will write about me.

  • I have met people from different cultures, experiences and ministries. I learned how to work together as a team. I have felt the spirit of love and giving.

  • AWT: you have nourished me spiritually and psychologically. I was able to say, “I love you” to my mom for the first time after many years. I was able to bless those who mistreated me; I was set free!

  • AWT has significantly influenced my life; providing me with many tools that have empowered me in my personal life and ministry. The vital you presented materials have helped many women, too. Arab Woman Today will not only be for today, but will also be for tomorrow and for the coming generations. I knew my identity in Christ. I forgave my abuser. I have a deeper genuine relationship with the Lord. I have purified my motives; I am not a people-pleaser any more. I am serving out of love and not out of obligation right now. I have shared about forgiveness and witnessed many women being healed and set free. They even began to pray and declare blessing over the life of the aggressor. It is a miracle in itself; a story that is worth to be celebrated! I have had pain and suffering for years because of dispute in my own household; as a result all communication was cut-off between brethren, and my heart was broken. I tried several times to fix the relationships, but failed. My participation in AWT 2015 annual network helped me truly understand the true meaning of divine forgiveness. I was able to distinguish between forgiveness and reconciliation. I prayed a lot and shed lots of tears, and released forgiveness with my whole heart. I felt peace that surpasses all understanding. Yet, I have still been waiting upon the Lord to bring reconciliation and it truly occurred last Christmas 2016: I experienced and reaped the harvest of my prayers of many years; I have witnessed my family reunion with complete healing taking place!

  • “It is a dream for many servants to participate in your trainings, to be supported and encouraged along the journey of ministry. Your characters and the way you have been treating us have made a difference in our history. The chances that I have been offered will by faith, courage and commitment, be really effective during the coming period in my life. Since, I will be leading some young girls and women through home counseling sessions.”

  • “It wasn’t by coincident that God gathered us in this place. Personally and faithfully I say that every meeting, sermon, lecture, and word that has been spoken made a difference in me and in my life. However, this tends to leave us with a huge responsibility for the coming period driving us to walk in the plan of God for our lives, so that we can truly make a difference for the glory of His name. Thank you for your hearts and shepherding spirit that have influenced us. I have also been given the chance to meet beautiful Arab women, and through all the training I have learned a lot from them, and I thank God for their lovely hearts.”

  • You came to my rescue in the toughest two years of my life!
